Since back in the day 
We've been close friends 
You would call on me telling me your problems 
I'd been feeling things, things I never said 
When you said that you were in love 
Wish it was me instead 
I'd treat you like an angel 
He treats you like a fool 
When you were hurting baby, I was broken too 
And I can't go on this way 
I need you baby 

Tired of being the shoulder you lean on 
Wanna be the one you hold on to 
More than just a friend 
Let me be your everything 
Wish I knew the way to make you 
See that I've fallen in love with you 
Can't you see I love you baby 

If I sit you down, tell you what I'm going through 
Will you leave him? 
Will it be too much for you? 
Don't wanna be an addition 
To your situation 
I never wanna be a complication 
But if I see you cry 
I'm stepping in 
I can't keep watching you get your heart broken 
(I can't go on this way)

I ain't never said that I loved you 
More than the friend that put nothin' above you 
And I could be more than the shoulder you lean on 
I could be your king little lady, you'd be gettin' your queen on 
It hurt me everytime I seen him hurt you 
Thinkin' 'bout these feelings got me runnin' in circles 
(I can't go on this way) 
I love your mind, body and soul, and even your perfume 

Whenever you're down, a mess (trouble)
I will be there baby 
I will lift you up when (trouble)
When there's trouble girl 
Look over your shoulders honey 
When there's (trouble) 
You can count on me
(Can't you see I love you baby)
